    CUPS problem with F14

    I have migrated from Debian to Fedora 14 (2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64).
    Problem is that I can't get my networked printer to work (which it did with Debian).
    The printer is Samsung ML-3561ND and I got all he drivers & PPD from Samsung support.
    I prefer to install the printer with CUPS and not with Samsung Unified Linux install software.
    Appreciate any help since I really need the printer ... right now I have to send my documents to a user's Windows workstation and print from there ... not a good solution.
    I have googled a lot but have not found any solution.

    CUPS tells me: "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl failed"

    ls -la /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl gives:
    -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 80608 Sep 17 2008 rastertosamsungspl

    CUPS sees the printer as follows:
    Description: Samsung_3561ND
    Location:
    Driver: Samsung ML-3560 Series (SPL II) (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
    Connection: socket://printer:9100
    Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided

    CUPS error log looks like:

    Re: CUPS problem with F14

    Hi zkab
    I have been installing printers on Fedora using CUPS for years. I now find that I am having a problem with Printing under F14. I am using the same driver choices as under F12 and yet no joy.
    I will keep trying but I feel that I have followed all the proper procedures and something seems different. If I get a resolution I will post here. Good luck...

    Re: CUPS problem with F14

    I'd recommend using system-config-printer (System->Administration->Printing) vs. the CUPS web interface (assuming that is what you mean when you say you prefer to use CUPS to configure).

    In the past, the CUPS web interface would write config files that were incompatible with the rest of the Fedora/Redhat printing system. Not sure if that is still the case. But the above tool usually does a pretty good job.

    Re: CUPS problem with F14

    I have also tried 'system-config-printer' but I didn't get the printer working ... when printing 'test page' I got following:

    Samsung-ML-3560-28 Test Page raivo 1k Unknown pending since Sat 26 Feb 2011 01:23:39 PM CET
    "Empty print file!"

    CUPS sees the printer as follows:
    Description: Samsung_3561ND
    Location:
    Driver: Samsung ML-3560 Series (SPL II) (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
    Connection: socket://printer:9100
    Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided

    CUPS error log looks like:
    ....................
    D [19/Feb/2011:16:41:31 +0100] [Job 27] Connected to printer...
    D [19/Feb/2011:16:41:31 +0100] [Job 27] Connected to 192.168.0.7:9100 (IPv4)...
    I see it's using socket 9100 which is HP Jetdirect, are you sure you're supposed to be using an HP
    protocol with your Samsung printer?

    UPDATE:
    All I see that looks good for this printer is:

    Re: CUPS problem with F14

    I have tried all the other protocols ... the same sad result.
    Which protocol do you recommend me to focus at ?
    Have also tried SPLIX 2.0.0 driver but receive error during 'make':
